e015: Not dumb pointers
0:00 -:--
Box, String, Vec, Rc, and Arc have this in common: they’re not dumb. This episode, we take a close look at smart pointer types—from a few we’ve already talked about, like Box, Vec, and String, to some new ones, like Rc and Arc. - What smart pointers are, and what makes them ‘smart’. - Why we want or need smart pointers. - A bit about Box. - A lot more about Rc and Arc.
